Lewis Capaldi added to Edinburgh Summer Sessions lineup

Bathgate-born star will headline this August at the city's Princes Street Gardens

Lewis Capaldi is the latest headline act to be announced for Edinburgh Summer Sessions 2019. The event returns to the city's Princes Street Gardens for the second time. Bathgate-born singer songwriter Lewis Capaldi will headline on Wed 14 Aug. Tickets for the show are available from 9am on Fri 8 Mar.

Calpaldi's debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, will be released on Fri 17 May ahead of the show. The album features No.1 single 'Someone You Loved' and 'Grace'.

The concert makes the singer's fourth Scottish date this year. Capaldi's previously announced tour dates at Glasgow's Barrowlands and Edinburgh's Usher Hall sold out in mere seconds. The Summer Sessions show gives those who missed out on tickets a second chance to catch him in his home country in 2019.

Speaking of the gig, the ever-funny Lewis Capaldi said: 'Well, well, well. Look who's playing a big f*ck off outdoor show in Edinburgh this summer, ya big lovely b*stards.'

The 2019 concert series runs over various days between Wed 7–Sun 18 Aug. Capaldi joins the bill alongside Florence + The Machine, Primal Scream, Johnny Marr, CHVRCHES, James, Courteeners and Madness.

It has been confirmed that We Were Promised Jetpacks will support CHVRCHES on Sun 11 Aug and The Lightning Seeds take to the stage on Sun 18 Aug as support for Madness.
